    This 4-bedroom single family home at 3220 N. New England in the Schorsch Village neighborhood of Dunning came on the market in November 2017. Schorsch Village is a west side neighborhood of single family homes built from the late 1920s to the 1950s. The homes built in the 1930s and 1940s were mostly English bungalows and tudors.

One look at why and how zoning has become a focus of property owners.

If this is not behind a pay wall, here's a think piece about how property owner opinions on their rights to have a say in community development evolved. While it doesn't set out to change anybody's opinion, having it in mind helps me understand why I hold certain value judgments. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/03/upshot/zoning-housing-property-rights-nimby-us.html?comments#permid=25419406

    How 'Not in My Backyard' Became 'Not in My Neighborhood'
    In Seattle, the neighbors don't want apartments for formerly homeless seniors nearby. In Los Angeles, they don't want more high-rises. In San Jose, Calif., they don't want tiny homes. In Phoenix, they don't want design that's not midcentury modern.

AirBNB Cleaning

Is anyone in the area interested in making some money doing some sporadic AirBNB cleaning? It's roughly 30 minutes of work a couple times a month. I'd offer $25 to someone I can trust to stop by and clean.

Unfortunately, there is usually only 1-3 days notice and the cleaning has to be done between 11:00am-2:00pm.

Addison & Central

  • Greetings,

    I live right off of Addison and Central. I have housekeeping experience and would be interested in hearing more about this position. I have excellent references that could easily be verified. I would be available immediately. Also, I would be able to work around a last minute cleaning.

    Sincerely,

    Mary

Coyote sighting

It’s Dec 11th and at 8am I saw a large coyote running around the block. It looked scared, tail down and ears back, and seemed to attempting to find a place to hide. I called 911 who sent me to 311. Last seen running northbound on Neva from Wellington. Animal Control has been notified.

Rich's Fresh Market Stinks?

Is "Rich's Fresh Market" a grocery store or a smokers lounge?

  • PennyPenguin Chillin' out on EB

    This seems more appropriate for a yelp review or the business's website. A random post here won't do much good and likely will solve nothing.

Neighbor running an illegal auto-shop from his garage.2-3 cars parked around his house. Since the garage is full of shop equipment & cars, this means at least 5-6 cars are parked on the street outside his house and mine. Loud noise throughout the day, fuel and oil smell, improper disposal of hazardous liquids, no fire extinguishers observed, no permit in window. Constant drop offs of cars or snowblowers and lawn mowers, back yard trashed. equipment everywhere and covered up with brown materials. Smell, noise, illegal activity in this beautiful neighborhood. Police called in several times since the owner is verbally abusive and threatening that he is gonna kill or "take care of us" if we complain. Went to alderman for 60634 zip code and was told to keep complaining and calling 911 every time the neighbor is doing an illegal activity. Attended a meeting at Portage Park with CPD and they said that city will send extra police rounds if needed. Any advice will be appreciated.

  • You just have to give Sposato a bigger envelope than this neighbor. All pencil neck Sposato cares about is his two city pensions.

    I know a bunch of these kinda people. Most are great guys earning a living or helping friends and family out. But i did live next door to one of these guys and im wondering if he moved and this is who your talking about. He was an addict. His kid was an addict and he abused his wife. Very bad guy. Tampered with peooles cars then magically showed up offering to fix them. He was a theif. And blew up his garage once mishandling someones gas tank. I had to move because of his antics. Horrible neighbor. Good luck!
